What's Up With Your Blog Name?

In my quest to join the blogging world, the 1st thing was to pick a name. Being the late bloomer (or should I say loser, lol) that I am so many names were already taken. Some names I tried were ridiculous and yet 'not available', so it got me thinking...where did people's names came from?

Mine wasn't my 1st choice though I can't remember what that was, guess that means I tried too many ;) "He followed me home, can I keep him?" was on a t-shirt I had as a kid. A little girl had a cute monster on a leash, hence the monster pic on my blog. It was my favorite & over 30 yrs later is still safe somewhere in a box. Why I still have it, I have no idea why- gotta be that OCD thing of mine! I'm thinking this name will take on a whole new meaning as I come home with books in hand & have to explain it to the hubby ;)

I thought it'd be fun to see where everyone's name came from or odd names people have come across

Lesson # 3
Sitting on your butt does nothing but give you a silly name. Don't wait for things to come to you, be proactive & take action!


  1. Cute! I like the name because it makes you go, "Huh?", which consequently makes in memorable! :-)

    Let's see . . . Books 'N Border Collies is probably fairly self-explanatory. They're my two favorite things! :-)


  2. Just wanted to say thanks for dropping by my blog - hope to see you back there again soon. :)

    My blog name stared b/c it was supposed to be a one year project. When it morphed into a lifetime passion, I modified my name to reflect that.

  3. Lezlie - now if only I can live up to my name & be memorable too, lol. My sis-in-law has a couple of border collies & does the agility too. It's fun to watch!

    Heather - funny how you end up with a blog isin't it! I'm following you, so you'll definitely be seeing more of me :)

  4. I love your name. The problem with many blog names is that they all blend into one another and I lose track of who is who. Yours is unique - I won't forget who you are!

    Welcome to the blogging world!
